Infinity Ward Creative Strategist and long time public face of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare series, Robert Bowling, has announced today that he is leaving the Activision-owned studio, sharing the decision with his army of CoD-fuelled twitter followers:
Today, I resign from my position as Creative Strategist of Call of Duty, as a lead of Infinity Ward, and as an employee of Activision
No hints of just where he might be headed next have been mentioned, but given that the poor guy has borne the brunt of every angry Call of Duty fan's rage for the past six years, we can only hope it's somewhere a little quieter.

Official comments from Activision offered both confirmation and well wishes:
We sincerely thank Robert for his many years of service. He's been a trusted and valued member of the Infinity Ward team. We wish him all the best on his decision to pursue future opportunities.
Although if it turns out that he's headed for fellow ex-Infinity Ward Jason West and Vince Zampella's Respawn Entertainment, perhaps that sentiment will prove a little less sincere.

lol. I remember reading the twitter rages he received regarding the BS that COD6 was on PC. Dunno if the dude was just sucking it up cause of his job, or whether he really didnt care for PC gamers.

Thank goodness he is going. Whether or not he had any part in the numerous "poor" decisions that have affected COD, he still had an extreme arrogance about him when discussing the game with tweeters and COD fans.
I remember one notable incident where someone tweeted to Bowling about how the COD graphics had barely improved since COD5 and detailed physics were near non-existent. Robert Bowling replied with something like, "just because you don't like the game, doesn't mean it is bad. We've sold millions of copies, which proves that people love it and it is the way they want it to be."
Immediately other tweeters came back with "we can't tell whether the game is bad, especially multiplayer, until we've bought the game (no demos until well after release). By then it's already too late and you think you have made another sale, so another great game".
He was a complete fool for someone who apparently worked in PR.
